Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


Contracts for Construction and Engineering Projects provides unique and invaluable guidance on the role of contracts in construction and engineering projects. The work explores various aspects of the intersection of contracts and construction projects involving the work of engineers and other professionals engaged in construction, whether as project managers, designers, constructors, contract administrators, schedulers, claims consultants, forensic engineers or expert witnesses.

Compiling papers written and edited by the author, refined and expanded with additional chapters in this new edition, this book draws together a lifetime of lessons learned in these fields and covers the topics a practising professional might encounter in construction and engineering projects, developed in bite-sized chunks.

The chapters are divided into five key parts:

1. The engineer and the contract

2. The project and the contract

3. Avoidance and resolution of disputes

4. Forensic engineers and expert witnesses, and

5. International construction contracts.

The inclusion of numerous case studies to illustrate the importance of getting the contract right before it is entered into - and the consequences that may ensue if this is not done - makes this book essential reading for professionals practising in any area of design, construction, contract administration, preparation of claims or expert evidence, as well as construction lawyers who interact with construction professionals.
